So i finally got a 61" Sony Grand Wega and I ordered HD from Direct TV. But now that the Tivo HD is out, what do I do? Once they install the regular receiver, i'll be stuck with it. So when the TIVO HD is bought, i'm stuck with a receiver and no tv, directv won't seem to take the original back even if only a few weeks later. This seems ridiculous since I can't get the TIVO in time so i'm forced to get the regular receiver or wait with no receiver till tivo is out. Any ideas?
Another option, if you are in a good OTA reception area, would be to temporarily cancel your D* order, go out to a retailer and buy an OTA only HD STB and a Silver Sensor indoor antenna. As long as you are within the 30 day return policy, you could use that box and then return it and use the refund towards your HD Tivo
